This double pumpkin is Steve Klein’s first of such a phenomenon, weighing about 40 pounds.

Steve Klein of Klein’s Cider Mill on Ten Mile Road east of Alpine Avenue has grown his first double pumpkin. He has seen this phenomenon with gourds and summer squash, but never in a pumpkin. The vegetable weighs about 40 pounds.

Klein’s offers a variety of items and activities at the mill. He makes his own apple cider, which is a Honey Crisp blend. Klein’s also offers a variety of apples from the orchard on his 80-plus-acre farm. He grows gourds, squash, vegetables and more. During the harvest season Klein’s offers horse-drawn wagon rides on the weekends, a seven-acre corn maze, you-pick pumpkins, and fall decorations. The farm teams up with Keyboard World on October 24 (rain date of Oct. 31) for a day of piano music, refreshments and more. There will be specials on apples and cider as well.

Klein’s raises their own cattle on the farm and have beef available for sale at the mill. Steve’s parents, Lenis and Dorace, are still active in the family business along with other family members who help out.
